Adopting a more holistic approach, the Diaspora Book Series aims to provide a global perspective and understanding of the role of diaspora in their host countries as well as their countries of origin and therefore provides a stimulus for knowledge exchange and discussion that focuses more specifically on issues relating to the role of diaspora in technology transfer (TT) and achieving sustainable development (SD) to critically examine the relations and links between diaspora, country of origin and host countries. Featuring case studies, ground-breaking research and new conceptual approaches, the series includes contributions from a range of diaspora scholars, professionals and leaders as well as scholars from around the world.
The series will attempt to outline policy and strategies to support the role of diaspora in developing, creating wealth and achieving SD in their countries of origin. The series also aims to publish lessons learned from the successful communities across the world and emulate the ideas and innovations of these communities by the diaspora countries of origin. Titles provide new methodologies through which technology and knowledge are transferred from the host countries and diffused within the countries of origin using sustainable approaches and practices, as well as a sound grounding in the terminology of TT and knowledge management (KM). In doing so, this series develops a number of tools of analysis in order to conceptualize various business and management theories that can be used to address the challenges posed to the development of the diaspora countries of origin. Adopting and adapting western business and management theories, it provides a practical application of various theoretical and practical frameworks in order to develop new ways of doing business in host countries.
